Knowledge and Wisdom

Happy Friday, All!

You’ve got to believe … T.G.I.F.! I do, trust me!

Here’s to hoping you each had a great week and are looking forward to a finer weekend, if possible! I am always grateful for the good things that happen. I’ve even learned to appreciate the “not so good” things that happen, too! As my parents used to say, “It builds character when you go through things!” Perhaps, I have enough of that character building thing they were talking about!

Nevertheless, today, I just want to send out some warm vibrations to all of those who have helped me along my way, whether you know it or not. This journey is one of continual growth based on knowledge and wisdom, two of the finest characteristics a human being may have. Being able to reconnect with people we’ve known years ago and experiences away has a tender effect on us … at least it does on me! Through Educational Excellence, I’ve been fortunate enough to have met, worked for and served, a diversity of folks which led to a plethora of experiences for me, and hopefully for them as well. As this month comes to an end, and, Black History Month approaches, I get more excited because of an opportunity to speak at the Boys and Girls Club of Broward County’s Lauderhill Center on February 7th, 2012. I am grateful for that opportunity, too!

In addition to a few other New Year’s resolutions, I have decided to learn more ways to enhance my life, my business and am fortunate enough to have people willing to assist me in this endeavor. I am glad to have the job I have at Platinum Marketing Group, a great group of co-workers and probably the coolest boss I’ve had in a long time! Trust me, I am glad to be working, and, as I continue to write my third manuscript, which highlights some of the jobs I have HAD to do as a result of some of my not so good experiences, I eternally thank my father – Isaac H. Cook – for instilling a hard core work ethic in me. I could name a few more folks that I’ve been fortunate enough to be in contact with but I will stop here.

“Knowledge is realizing that the street is one-way, but wisdom is looking in both directions anyway.” FORTUNE COOKIE

Have a wonderful day, a great weekend and may the force and love of The Creator abound in each of you!


John I. Cook, Director
